    Saw this section for a long time and kept looking sometimes out of interest.
    But now I want to know if BIOS modding is really giving an advantage, for example;
    Can your PC run faster/smoother because of it?

    So kind of looking answer on this question:
    Why should I go mod my BIOS? :)

    Depend on what you want to...

    it is unlocked or update unsupported bios.

    for example,
    it is expensive to buy original battery for sony vaio laptop, roughly $200 and rare on market.
    but oem remanufactured battery is less $100, but it won't work or recognise the sony vaio, caused official sony bios is locking to sony original battery.
    so the bios needs mods to unlocking or remove the battery code from bios to work on the oem remanufactured battery.

    also, there are lots of reason to do.

    I don't think itself won't make faster on same machine by bios itself.

    but if you want to change faster CPU or Memory, it should be worked on the chip platform or motherboard.
    sometimes, most of manufacture service team won't spend time to update the information or confirm to customer, because it is out of product !!!

    want to add faster CPU which can be support the mainboard platform?
    it might add CPU micro code, memory, video bios update, something else, etc...

    hope you understand my poor English.

    @ MaDMaxiBo, the reason for bios mods on this forum is to add slic or slp for OEM:SLP activation.

    If there is a setting in your BIOS called "Quick Power on Self Test" or similar enable this it turns of the printing of bios information to the screen, there might also be an option for delay for F2 (i forget its proper name) but basically its a short delay to alow you to press the key F2/DEL/ESC to enter bios setup, set this delay to 0 (you would have to hold the appropriate key if you wanted to get into setup when you boot after this).
